"It's been a while since I've been on a date.… I just haven't met anyone," said Bachelor contestant Courtney Robertson on a recent episode of the hit ABC show. But those words couldn't be further from the truth.

A new report from Life & Style magazine reveals that while Courtney was saying those words to bachelor Ben Flajnik, someone from Courtney's past was finding out the hard way why she suddenly disappeared from his life when he was getting ready to propose to her.

An insider tells the magazine that Courtney had been dating photographer Cavan Clark when she "literally vanished" from his life after things had started to get serious.

"She was dating [him] for months. Then one day she just stopped calling," said the source.

Adding insult to injury, Clark found out where Courtney 'disappeared' to when he saw her on a commercial for the show - wearing a dress he had bought her.
